Eleven schools record zero pass percentage
Srinagar, Dec 18: Though the performance of government schools in class 10th result, declared on Monday, is quite impressive, at least 11 schools have fared badly as none of their students managed to qualify the examination.
A cursory look at the result brings to fore the miserable performance of many government schools across the Valley despite being adequately staffed and getting adequate funds under centrally sponsored schemes like Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) and Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA). While none of the students from 11 schools cleared the examination, more than a dozen schools failed to register impressive result.
Government High School Furah, Government High School Satiharan, Government High School Nagabal, Government High School Yarikah, Government High School Khanmoh, Government High School Zethan, Government High School Achoora, Government Boys High School Budanamal, Government High School Puchal, Government Girls High School R N Mandir and Government Boys High School Gulab Bagh registered zero pass percentage.
What is more appalling, less than 10 students had appeared in the examination from eight schools which recorded zero pass percentage. In one case -Government Girls High School R N Mandir- a solitary candidate had appeared but failed to qualify.
Officials in School Education Department told Greater Kashmir that inefficiency of teaching staff is solely responsible for bad performance of these institutions.
“You cannot blame shortage of accommodation or facilities for appalling results. In these schools, there was no grievance vis-à-vis dearth of staff,” they said, citing that Government High School Zethan, which recorded zero pass percentage, was staffed with 12 teachers.
But the officials failed to answer if only 12 teachers were enough for a high school having 10 classes.
“The leniency culture cultivated over the years would prove detrimental for educational system of the state and it is high time that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah who also heads School Education Department should take proper action in these cases,” officials said.
When contacted, Director School Education, Muhammad Shafi Rather said that government would proceed with appropriate action against the schools registering poor performance.
“In cases of zero percent result, tough action would be initiated,” he said. However, Rather expressed satisfaction over overall performance of government schools.
